抱中國大腿的墨爾本市長

Lord mayor’s Beijing surprise│市長的北京意外之旅

Lord mayor John So last week hosed down a controversy that erupted over his plan to fly to China next Tuesday (August 12) to spend two weeks at the Olympic Games. Despite his council colleagues fuming about discovering his travel plan by reading about it in the press, So maintains he’s doing nothing wrong by taking leave. He says he’s being flown and put up free of charge by the Chinese Government as a private citizen – not in his capacity as lord mayor – so there was no need to tell the other councillors. Makes you wonder how many other private citizens get the same treatment.

墨爾本市長蘇震西(John So)上周消彌他因計畫八月十二日前往中國參加北京奧運而在市議會引爆的爭議。市議會是透過報紙報導才知道市長要參加奧運,儘管引起了市議員們的憤怒抗議,蘇震西並不覺得不妥,仍執意前往中國參加盛會。他表示,他不是以墨爾本市民的身分,而是以中國公民的私人身分接受中國官方全程款待而出席活動,所以不需要告知所有市議會同仁。這番說法讓人不免猜想有多少「中國公民」能享有一樣的待遇。


蘇震西之前跟中國大使館書信往來過從甚密,墨爾本市議員因此要求他公開與中國之間的書信資料,蘇震西還說要尊重中國大使館意願才能公開,遭市議員抨擊他是「中國的走狗」,現在他接受中國北京奧運兩周之旅的高級待遇,可以想見這是因為之前抵制法輪功遊行、圖博人權聖火與達賴喇嘛訪問等「功績」的回饋。

不知道墨爾本要這種抱著中國大腿的市長幹嘛?
